Tell the Colorado Air Quality Control Commission to protect our air from toxic diesel trucks
Colorado's air is the seventh most polluted in the country. And heavy duty diesel trucks are a major contributor to the dangerous emissions that have made this a reality. The Colorado Air Quality Control Commission (AQCC) has a unique opportunity to implement Advanced Clean Truck (ACT) and Low Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) truck rules that would bring tougher emissions standards, improve air quality, reduce carbon emissions, and keep our communities safe.
Truck pollution is a public health issue and a key environmental justice issue. In Colorado, heavy duty trucks are operating in congested areas (highways, warehouses, ports, etc.) in close proximity to communities of color and low-income communities, putting them at a disproportionately higher risk of asthma, decreased lung function, heart attacks, lung cancer, and premature deaths.
Colorado must prioritize the health and safety of its communities by enforcing higher clean truck standards on diesel truck manufacturers. Submit a comment today urging the AQCC to protect our clean air.
Take Action: Tell the AQCC you support Advanced Clean Truck and Low NOx rules.
